Goals in Each Period Lead Steelheads Past Stingrays, 3-1

BOISE, IdahoThe Idaho Steelheads (13-7-1) showed consistent pressure throughout the game, taking down the South Carolina Stingrays (9-8-2) with a 3-1 win on Friday night from Idaho Central Arena in front of 5,252 fans, the seventh sellout of the season.THE GAME’S STO­­RYFor the third-straight game, the Steelheads struck first with this one coming in the opening frame. After a good offensive possession, defenseman Darren Brady (8:45 1st) took a one-time shot from the top of the slot to snag that early advantage. The Stingrays converted on their first power play late in the first period to knot the game, 1-1. At nearly the same time as in the first period, Steelheads forward Zack Andrusiak (8:44 2nd) buried his own rebound from the right circle to take the one-goal edge. That momentum carried into the third period, when forward Colby McAuley (0:54 3rd) scored on a breakaway to double the lead at 3-1, and the Steelheads locked down from there for the win.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1.
